Just a bunch of MSW friends getting together in mid-winter to stay in touch and to affirm our mutual respect and friendship, make more plans ... and to have some good eats! We'll be getting together at family-owned Ashland Cafe, Bar and Grill in Cockeysville. Dawn Venker has been our event coordinator on this and we thank her very much for making arrangements. This isn't our upcoming meet n' greet which will be in March in Eldersburg; rather, it is a lower-key with no agenda. Our attendee cap is 25 and we ask, at least initially, that any newcomers be limited to those sponsored by another attendee. Ryde or drive in ... No ryde planned (unless it's 70 degrees on February 10th .... mmmright). See everyone then ... Free on Three!
It's time! We've got the date; Oscar's is ready and menus are forthcoming. Join us for our Annual Meet n' Greet were we all get back together after a long cold winter and talk about our plans for 2019! We had quite the planning meeting on January 12th, and want to share what was discussed and subsequent growth with the club at large, including events, club dues and any rules changes. We'll recognize some MSW heros and maybe ... juuuust maybe ... a short ryde, weather dependent. More details to come Please RSVP and commit as soon as you can. This is one of those highlight events were we need to provide our host an accurate count. Thank you in advance!
*** PLEASE MAKE RESERVATIONS NOW. We have a leg up on groups competing for lodging during the same period. Prompt reservations will ensure we all get in to our Event HQ lodging.*** 2019 marks MSW's SIXTH Annual Amish Spyder Clutter ryde-in, two days of touring and friendship, encompassing beautiful Lancaster, PA and surrounding counties. MSW's Spyder Clutter is our opportunity to greet new friends, familiarize newer ryders with group riding, well as commune with some of the other clubs from Maryland, Pennsylvania and even NJ. The rydes are always scenic and relaxing. We top off the event with a great dinner Saturday evening, hopefully with some perqs provided by some of our great sponsors. This year, "The Clutter" will be a Ryde-in, beginning Friday, May 17, 2019, a big ryde on Saturday, May 18th and a smaller coffee and pastry ryde on May 19th, followed by goodbyes and setting off back to our respective homes.
